    It's because Muhammad is not in the bible; your arguments were defeated, and you would not debate properly. It's not that RF is not a place for Muslims; it's that it is not a place for those who won't defend their points.

    So, bye.

    Level playing fields aren't very attractive to religious people. They generally prefer their ideological bubbles.

    My Catholic and Shinto faith gets insulted here all the time. Unlike so many Muslims, I can deal with people insulting my Religion and myself. So many Muslims can't handle it so they have laws where a person can be imprisoned or executed for criticizing the prophet Muhammad or the Quran.

    Pope here has long been in civilized conflict with many of us, but he has faith in his own version of religion, and while most of it makes no sense to me, he is fully capable of debating on a level playing field. If you are here to preach and not engage with others that would question the validity of your assertions then you came to the wrong place.

    I would agree RF is not very hospitable to Muslims I agree with this but as I read your thread I think the nature of Muhammad being in the Bible has been a long standing debate for some time. But this is not a place to “spread the word of Islam,” because due to the climate of what is going on in the world very many people are biased in their opinions regarding Muslims and Islam.

    By the way I’m a non-Muslim that has went to bat for Muslims and Islam many times hence is why people mistakenly consider me a Muslim. Although, and perhaps at heart I maybe, but I love Hennessy too much. But if you truly want to spread the message of Islam continue to study Islamic theology, philosophy, or do charitable works.

    Well you get criticized because of the things you do and I don’t think Muslim sensitivities are the reasons Muslim countries have harsh laws.

    I am not really sure why your thread is closed. But, i doubted that RF would simply close a thread, simply because you want to debate if Muhammad was prophesied in the Bible. I actually like these debates. I had previously opened a thread with exactly same Title.
    I think we should all be cool with debates, and do not have fanatical feelings toward a religion.
    I had also created some threads before showing Bahai Faith was prophesied in the Quran and the Bible.
    What all can agree is, there is no explicit or clear mention of Muhammad in the Bible. There are allusions that one can believe they are about Muhammad, but then the question arises that, if God wanted to mention Muhammad in the Bible, why He did not make the statement clear, so, there remains no doubt about it.

    A thread has been temporarily closed. It will be re opened soon I hope. The thread is fine, but we are reviewing some posts with an aim of calming down some of the dialogue. Its important that it doesn't become a no holds barred accusation fest.

    I don't think there's a faith or non-faith here that doesn't get insulted. I've been insulted by folks from various viewpoints.

    No. It's not the place to spread the word, because that's not what the forum is supposed to be about. Read the rules!

    They why don't you clearly state your religion, like I do? I always wonder at people who post in a religious forum without being prepared to put their cards on the table.

Staff are volunteers literally scattered all over the globe in almost every time zone and hemisphere, and do not see every post that is made. A little-referred to rule is #9, which prohibits posts that foster an air of unwelcoming to any group:

    Yet there have been others that do it here in a suttle fashion or do you think proselytizing means promoting your faith and asking people to join? There are various ways of manipulation.


    You know I have posted many times on this forum and have told others I am an agnostic-theist. I cannot help you or others who have a deficiency in navigating through the forum to find this out. I have told a lot of people I am not Muslim and I have made a thread about my belief. You just happen to be late to the party.

    Perhaps some of your posts would have been better off in "Interfaith Discussion" or the Abrahamic DIR or Islam DIR?

    I'm sad to see you go, and I hope you will reconsider.
    I feel like some of the conduct I have seen towards you has been very unfair, but others were right to enforce the rules of debate.

    Peace be upon you.

    Why should I want to search the forum to find out what you are? I'm not interested. You said people mistake you for a Muslim. I said you could make things clear by using the facility provided to label yourself with something more intelligent than "the one which the craetor made".
